According to an article in the Buffalo News, the Buffalo Niagara region is booming with new athletic complexes. School districts are investing in the goodwill that results from active high school sports programs.
"It’s a national trend," said Robert Zayas, executive director of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. "I think communities are really seeing the value of high school sports, what it brings to the community and what it does to benefit the students who participate."
More than $60 million has been pledged to projects across four school districts and it looks like it may not stop there. Check out the great gallery of upgrades.
One great way to take full advantage of these new mega complexes is to use GymDandy to manage your athletic scheduling. GymDandy’s breakthrough scheduling technology allows coaches and school stakeholders to easily request space and saves the administration hours of time compared with traditional methods or existing software options. As schools newly sponsor additional sports like Field Hockey and Lacrosse this management flexibility is huge.
Another huge hurdle with building these complexes and maintaining them is cost. Schools can utilize GymDandy’s athletic space marketplace to sell any time that isn’t used by internal resources to recoup some of the dollars that go into building and maintaining these beautiful fields of dreams.
